Sustainable Building Technology

This course is specifically tailored towards graduates in building services, architectural environmental engineering, architecture and other related disciplines. It is carefully structured to accommodate the interests and skills of those who are related to building design and technology and building energy and environmental performance. There is emphasis on successful integration of renewable and sustainable energy technologies into buildings, which requires an understanding of both design and technology and hence the close co-operation of architecture and engineering. The course is designed to allow discussion and exchange of information between different disciplines and encourages novel and imaginative solutions to the challenge of producing environmentally friendly buildings.
